Windshield wiper blades are an important safety system for your car. It’s said that 90% of our driving decisions are based on visual information, and windshield wipers play a big role in keeping your windshield clean and clear. Over time, windshield wiper blades will dry out and crack from exposure to the sun, wind, and rain. In order to keep your windshield wipers in good condition, it’s important to regularly inspect them and replace them as needed. Don’t wait until they stop working to replace them – by then, it may be too late. A dirty or streaked windshield can catch the glare of the sun or on-coming headlights and make it nearly impossible to see. So if you want to stay safe on the roads, make sure to keep your windshield wipers in tip-top shape.
It’s important to change your windshield wiper blades twice a year, in the spring and fall. That way you have functional blades for those spring showers and winter storms. Consider a windshield treatment to help repeal water and make it easier to clean off bugs and road grime. Like everything else in the automotive world, there’ve been some big advancements in wiper blades, both in terms of the design and the materials from which the blade is made. We can help you get the same type of blades that came with your vehicle, or if you have a need for better than average windshield wipers, you can pay some more for an upgraded wiper. And if you live where there’s a lot of snow and ice, they make special winter blades that don’t clog up and freeze like standard blades.
